Netru Indru (English: Yesterday, Today) is a 2014 Tamil action film, directed by Padmamagan, a filmmaker who earlier directed Pallavan and R. Parthiban starrer Ammuvagiya Naan. Prasanna and Vimal, along with Richard Rishi and Bharani of Naadodigal fame, played the lead roles, while Arundhati and Manochitra were the female leads. Rehhan scored the music for the film, while Dinesh Sre was the cinematographer. Shot entirely in forests of South India, Netru Indru draws a parallel between events happened in the past and ones that happens in the present in the forest. Produced by S. Malathy, it was expected to hit the screens in August 2013, but it did not release on the projected release date but after several delays in June 2014.

    In August 2012, it was reported that director Padmamagan was starting a new film titled Koothu with Vimal and Prasanna in the lead. The director claimed that it was not "a run of the mill love story" but a thriller with a "unique screenplay". He further stated, "Koothu is a green journey in my life amid rocks and isolated forests with no human approach. We were in dense jungles to conduct shooting for Koothu. It is an extravaganza of nature's bounty." Alongside Vimal and Prasanna, upcoming actors Richard, Bharani, Harish and Nithish were part of the principal cast, while Manochitra (then named Nandhagi) and Arundhathi were signed as the female leads.

    The film was shot in 65 days in the dense forests around the border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Filming locations include places such as Malabar Coast, south Deccan Plateaus, Western Ghats mountain rainforests, Andhra Pradesh and Pondicherry.

    The film's trailer was released in August 2012 and after a period of inactivity, the title was changed in March 2013 from Koothu to Netru Indru and an audio launch function was held. Prasanna revealed that Vimal had forgone his salary for the film, as a result of the producer's financial problems. The film received an A certificate from the Censor Board, with the director stating, "For commercial value, we wanted heroines for the film. Once we got them on board, the glamour quotient went a bit out of hand. But the whole thing suited the story very well than we expected. So we decided not to compromise the film by taking a U certificate".


    Music was composed by Rehaan who earlier composed for the film Vannathupoochi.

    The Times of India gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "Every once in a while, there comes a film that makes you go 'Am I really seeing this?' and Netru Indru is that kind of film — a film so bad that it's good. It is unashamedly crass, exploitative and downright sexist". gave it 2 out of 5 and wrote, "Perhaps to compensate the lack of other commercial elements the director has rested his stakes on sleaze, sex and skin show. Despite...inadequacies and inconsistencies and being not suitable at all for viewing with family, Netru Indru cannot be termed as a bad movie. The different premise and non-linear narration that does not breed boredom saves the show".
